This Tuesday, October 3, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. (Miami) Lens will face Arsenal at the Bollaert-Delelis Stadium. The match is valid for Matchday 02 of the UEFA Champions League.
Lens had a rather difficult start to the season, but after a draw in Seville on the first day of the Champions League, they achieved two victories in Ligue 1 by beating Toulouse and Strasbourg. These two consecutive victories allowed Lens to get out of the relegation zone in the Ligue 1 standings, and they currently occupy 15th position with 7 points, one point above Lorient, which is in a risky position. As for the Champions League, in Group B, Lens shares 2nd and 3rd place with Sevilla, both with one point on their account, before the start of the second round.
The Canaries lead Group B with 3 points after the first day and have a goal difference of 4-0. In their last match, they defeated the Dutch PSV with a score of 4-0 in a match in which four different players (Saka, Trossard, Gabi Jesus and Edegaard) scored goals. Arsenal have had an outstanding performance in the current season, as they have not lost a game and have only recorded three draws in regulation time.
